Rebel

I never understood

Why I couldn't stand

Why I couldn't change

 

Left in a box

claustophobic

can't breathe

 

No one seems to understand me

I'm too different

too broken

can't break free

 

Just another kid on the street

just another mouth to feed

maybe just maybe if you looked at me

I could be something more than a catastrophe

 

colors in grey

blank eyes

flightless bird

crying child

 

but no one cares

no one sees

that somethings great about me

 

Strong

strange

bold

colorful

 

I'm a rebel

among mindless soldiers

A rose

among thorns
